“Ascolta!”, Jan Michiels

A unique opportunity presents itself for those who've missed Jan Michiels' PhD defence. On 30th September, he will perform Ascolta! as a pre-festival concert for the Orpheus Research Festival 2014, "(im)possible worlds – new (im)possibilities". Registration for this free concert or the entire festival is possible until 15th September.

Unique concert experiences demand for unique artists with a dream and a vision. The renowned Belgian pianist Jan Michiels has developed his “unperformable” four-and-a-half-hour programme Ascolta! because he believes in the power, in the difficulty, and in the happiness of listening. But where can such an unconventional piano solo recital be performed?

Here's a nice impression of the programme.
